Am I a broken reader?

Image result for going crazy

Am I a broken reader?

I write this because well… I guess I read, and LOVE, what I see so many hate. Loathe, reject or deny.

Let me start by saying, this post is NOT about anyone. Its not what anyone said or did, but I what I keep stumbling across as the “norm.”

Growl. I can’t tell you how many posts I’ve run across where some say, “Oh for the love of baby kittens, NO MORE GROWLING.”

Me?

I fucking love it. Done right, if he growls at her, it shivers me timbers. Am I broken?

Millionaires and surprise babies. There are some who say, give me MORE! Some places actually push that troupe.

Me?

What the ever loving fuck? I’m so damn broke and menopausal my head can’t even begin to wrap around that. Not even for a minute. Am I broken?

First vs Third? Again, I’ve run across countless posts, from readers, agents and even editors. Heck, even crit classes. AVOID first.

Me?

LOVE it. I often write 1st POV and more often, read it. When done well, you become that character for their story. Don’t get me wrong. If there are many emotions from many characters I think 3rd is best to better get this across to the reader. Am I broken?

There are so many DON’TS that are my DO list that I’m lest wondering…

Am I a broken reader/author?

Weigh in. Gimme your thoughts. I’m curious.

A farewell dinner WITH pics!

Doing a quick dinner posting. Last night we had a farewell meal with my niece and her family. Their heading back up to Oklahoma later this month.

Remember, there are nine people in this house. NINE!

So, any event is a huge undertaking in getting everything ready. Between tidying bathrooms, sweeping, carpets etc, the cooking must be something I know I can control the time of. Last night I made the below for the 1st time and it was SUPER easy! Because it was a little here and a little there, I was able to clean in-between the prep work and NOT run around like crazy. Okay, so maybe there was a tad of crazy but I was also finishing up the baby blanket and matching hat.

The meal;

Cheesy Potato & Ham Bake w/ Side Salad, Homemade Bread and Lemon Tarts for dessert.

If anyone is interested in the easy recipes, just comment so and I’ll edit this to include them. For now, I’ve got to get back to my posts for an upcoming June class on queries.

Happy Eating & Happy Writing!

Horror Chat & Recipe (What a combo right?)

Table for Three-Hold the Blood by [Romans, Bobbi]

 

Quick post as I’m still going full steam with no pause in sight.

Book Update: Two Summer Steamy reads coming soon…I’m waiting on some feedback to a much sweeter, slower paced story and Swamp Magic Bk4 is also still in the works. I’ll keep everyone updated.

For those new to me, I’m going to share a few reviews from a fun, horror cross over I did a few back.

Blurb:

Shana, Erron, and Marklon hadn’t realized life had more than a committed threesome in store for them. Like catching the serial killer monster who is leaving bloody body parts in restaurants throughout their small town—on platters no less.

The first murder and subsequent meal/gag occurred not long ago, at the upscale eatery, Carnal Cravings. Not long after, nearly every restaurant in town had served up some form of unexpected tartar. Heads on platters stuffed like prize pigs at luaus and people popsicles. Even deli-wrapped penises, taking Oscar Meyer Weiner to a whole new plane of pun, have rocked the sleepy little town of Crow Manor Maine to a state of panic.

It was then the nightmares began for Shana and her two men. It wasn’t long before she realized they weren’t nightmares but visions. They’d become attuned to the killer. As the threesome fight for their love and their lives, old skeletons tumble out of the closet that could literally carve them to shreds.

For Table for Three-Hold the Blood and Amazon Reviews

5-Stars

This certainly was different and I really enjoyed it. Is there a movie out about it yet? There should be if not. Looking forward to reading more from this author. Thank you.

4-Stars

“Wicked Good

What isn’t great is the speed with which the book ended. Thus 4 out of 5 stars.
This was a well written and well edited story with great characters and a wicked plot.

Ghastly Fun

By Masonon July 11, 2013

Format: Kindle Edition

This is the third Bobbi Romans book I’ve read and I really love her writing still. Fast paced horror and love. Not one dull moment for her characters or for her readers.
This book is definitely not for the squeamish or faint of heart. But for guilty pleasure reading, just the ticket.”

 

 

To clarify… this story is NOT a romance but believe it or not, does have romantic elements. It is horror.  Another reviewer mentioned  “Grindhouse flick”  so for any tempted to read, understand all this BEFORE purchasing. But I think its fun.  So while I write, as another review said,

“4-stars Not for the squeamish

By Stacey Dixon on April 22, 2017

Format: Kindle Edition

I love horror and gory stories, this book had nice blend of some romance and humor to balance the blood and guts, what i love about Bobbi Romans is she writes books in so many different genres but they are all great books!”

all over the place, I do try my best to label my stories correctly.

Amazon Table for Three-Hold the Blood

Recipe Time!!

I meant to pop on sooner to share this. At Easter, I did this and it was hoovered in seconds.
Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

 1-2 Bunches Asparagus

1-2 pkgs Bacon

1/2 Cup of Brown Sugar

1 Stick of Real Butter

1-2 Tsp Garlic Powder

Garlic salt with chives

Now to conserve on money I cut my package of bacon in half. Bacon stretches so it worked fine.

PREHEAT OVEN to 400

Hold bacon up by top of Asparagus and simply wrap it around. Doesn’t have to be a solid wrap but just wind it around. Repeat this for all asparagus and bacon. Laying each piece down on parchment lined cookie sheet.

Once done, melt stick of butter, add brown sugar and garlic powder and mix well.

Using a basting brush, brush butter mixture over asparagus.

Lightly sprinkle garlic salt with chives over tops.

Bake for about 10-15  min watching close for signs bacon is cooked.

 

Enjoy and have a Great Week!

Bobbi

13 Days of Halloween- MY day! Squee ~

13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop

Whoop- Whoop-Today’s my hop day!
(Psst– might be a contest-so read on!)

So, are your ready yet? Decorations up? Candy bowl filled? Costume picked?
We’re ready here. Even have some pics to share. My neighborhood happens to be one of the “it” neighborhoods to hit up. Yes, like the police block the entrance in about an hour or so into the night. You can walk in, but they stop anyone from driving in (fire hazard reasons) due to all the traffic.

I start buying the 100 PLUS piece bags of candy every week starting in September to make sure I have enough. (Yes, we get that many)

Something else we do traditionally, is have monster fingers and blood soup and ghosts in the graveyard for dinner!

Essentially its stuffed breadsticks (ham & cheese) and the ends are formed rounded (like the end of your finger) and using a knife the impression of a fingernail is scored in. Using an egg yolk and green or blue food coloring, the nail is painted and then the breadsticks are baked about 10 min. (or until golden) Serve with tomato (blood) soup. Ghosts in the graveyard is a rich chocolate dessert where you use 1/2 the milk required to make chocolate pudding, then crush up chocolate cookies or Oreos and mix those and 1/2 tub of cool whip into the pudding. Top with more crushed chocolate cookies (dirt) then using flat cookies (like the coconut ones) and decorating icing, spell words (on the flat cookies) like R.I.P etc, and push gently into the pudding until they stand up. Add candy corn pumpkins about and using a teaspoon and the rest of the cool whip, form little ghosts.

Now, onto the adult fun!

Freshly released and in perfect time for Halloween we have…

The Sinful Chocolatier!

Blurb:
Palm and her best friend Trixie had a happy routine. Whenever time allowed, they hit their favorite mom-and-pop shop, namely The Chipper Chocolatier. A few times a month they also hit the Ferocious Felines Club, the strip club where Kane, the hot-ass fireman, danced and got his flirt on with Palm. Instead of putting out fires, he started them, and not just blazes: infernos.

When Troy had to take on a second job to help his parents out, he never thought he’d love it so much. But color him surprised; he loved dancing–especially for the sexy brunette who came in with her friend every time he worked.

When chocolate and stripper collide, a new world of decadent desires erupt. But will Troy’s double life create the perfect recipe to be savored at length…or be a one-time indulgence?

Loose Id: http://www.loose-id.com/the-sinful-chocolatier.html

Also here are two other FUN Halloween Reads!

Fangs for Everything (actually set around a Halloween Party)

Blurb:
Special Notes: While there is a very small mention of characters found in my Swamp Magic Series, it isn’t part of it. Non Swamp Magic readers wouldn’t know, but to any regular readers who have read, it would just be a small, oh cool, kind of moment.

Sabrina Miller normally loves fall, the upcoming holidays and especially the big annual Halloween bash. This year she feels itchy for something more, something different. Magical even. Might just be she’s hornier than a hound dog in heat during the longest dry spell she’s ever had. Though she has high hopes for the party, she fears the night might turn out to be no more than a dirty trick.

In a town where everyone either dresses as cheerleaders, football players or vampires, she spots him.

Van Helsing!

Van only intended on popping in to the party for a quick bite. But among the many sexily, scantily clad cheerleaders one woman stood out.

The Bride of Dracula, no less.

When the woman and her friends are attacked, Van knows he’s the only one with enough knowledge about the attacker to save them.

But saving his heart from the young woman fate lured him to will be another battle.

Sometimes in order to win the battle, one must lose the war.

Table for Three-Hold the Blood
(a sort of ménage a horror)

Happy New Year & a Freebie!

Its been an emotional roller coaster this season. Sadly our nephew who lived with us (old enough to chose where he wants to live) decided in the heat of the moment, I’m Satan and he’s better off with his mom.
Yes Virginia, this house has rules.
So, we were minus a child during the holiday and are still in the “what’s going on?” stage with his family who have, short of two quick phone calls, been mum on what the plans are for the future living arrangements.
Then the evening of the above revelation that I’m Satan, a storm of all storms rolled in and the kitchen flooded.
We survived the drama and still had a peaceful though melancholy Christmas.
Now as we roll towards the New Year I’ve decided I’m not doing a damn thing the same as last year. Last year rather sucked, not catastrophic or anything, but if something doesn’t work… change it!
No black eyed peas and greens here (never liked them anyway) nope– we’re kicking this year off with cheeseburgers and a baked potato bar.
Also, it’s time for some serious house cleaning. As in I have too much “Stuff.” I gotta let go of something. I can’t keep everything that holds memories. There simply isn’t room anymore.
On a side note, to help ring in the New Year, from the 31st to the 2nd An American Holiday (ebook) will be FREE! So help me spread the word so that those with their new E-Readers have a FREE book to upload.
For those that don’t have ereaders, you do know that the Kindle App is FREE for your phone/computer. Yep. And even on the phone app, the font is page size. Yep. It’s not itty bitty print. Nope, full size.
Well- Hope everyone had an amazing holiday/Christmas and will have a wonderful and prosperous New Year!
Bobbi Romans
